The Department for Education (DfE) developed the protocol in response to the 2014 workload challenge survey. It sets out DfE’s commitment to:

  • introduce minimum lead-in times (the times schools have to prepare for the changes they need to make) for significant changes to accountability, the curriculum or qualifications
  • do more to consider the workload of staff in schools when introducing such changes
